DuShon Monique Brown, Connie on Chicago Fire, dead at 49

The Chicago native died at the St James Olympia Field Hospital in IL. "Our thought and prayers are with DuShon's family and we will all miss her".

More recently, she had been starring in "Chicago Fire" in a recurring capacity as Connie - a role that she'd played since 2012. Her death is now being investigated by the medical examiner."Chicago Fire" actress DuShon Monique Brown has died after suffering an apparent heart attack.

Brown was part of the cast of long-running NBC drama "Chicago Fire", in which she played Connie, the no-nonsense assistant to Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker).

TMZ reported her family called paramedics on Friday morning as she was feeling ill.

Brown told the website Hidden Remote a year ago that when the actress was first played the role of Connie on the NBC series, "my character didn't even have a name".

Friend and fellow theatre actor Carla Stillwell told The Chicago Tribune: "She was a brilliant actor, but she was also so goofy". One way or another, we also do hope that there is a way for the series to honor her more on-screen. "What was exciting was (I) was auditioning for a Chicago show, but it was also the possibility that she could maybe develop into something". "She was just a ham, and she was truly loved".

Brown was a Chicago native and got her start in film and television in 2005.

She is survived by her daughter.

The sad news was also confirmed by Kenwood Academy High School in an email to parents, where DuShon once worked as a crisis counsellor and ran a "Drama Starz Program".
